DENVER — A Colorado company on Tuesday pleaded guilty to illegally exporting defense technology to Turkey, South Korea, China and Russia.

Federal authorities said Rocky Mountain Instrument Co. pleaded guilty Tuesday in federal court in Denver to one count of exporting defense technology without a license. The company must forfeit $1 million, which authorities say represents what it made from criminal activities.

The company was also sentenced to five years of probation, during which it must develop an export control compliance program.

David Gaouette, US attorney in Colorado, says most of the technology involved is used by US troops in Afghanistan.
